General Features

The class-array editor.
The class-array editor.Zoom

In the class-array editor, rows are represented by a set of horizontal panes.

These panes can be :

  • BPF -like views , if the component values are numbers
  • list views , if the components are other types of objects or values .

The following values can be displayed at the top of the editor by hovering the mouse over a component :

  • the number of the current component
  • the values related to this component for each of the fields, such as coordinates, if values are available.

Displaying Options and Configuration


To zoom in/out on a selected region – a components subset – : use the and buttons of the palette.

  • To display or hide the lines of BPFs, check the Line option.
  • To apply a global grid to the editor, check the Grid option.
  • To show or hide the user-defined field , check the Show Optional Fields option.

All the fields of a simple class-array are user-defined. Consequently, all the rows of such arrays are hidden if this option is unchecked. Subclasses of class-arrays with "predefined" fields may remain visible.

Rows Configuration

Each row can be hidden or shown with a click on the triangle icons located on the upper left corner of each pane.

To save, recall or remove a given configuration, use the + and - buttons at the bottom of the editor.

To select a configuration, use the adjacent pop up menu, which contains all available or recorded configurations.


BPF-Like Rows

  • hiding / showing lines
  • moving points, in order to change the value(s) of the corresponding components.

Points cannot me removed.

List Rows

List rows display the contents of every components, with various types of representations depending on the type of data.

Objects with an editor – BPFs , score objects, arrays, etc.– can be open by a double click and edited individually.

Limits of Array Editors
